Our loving father and grandpa, Charles J. Oberle, Sr. of West Haverstraw, NY passed away suddenly on Monday, September 28, 2020 at his home. He was born on December 5, 1938 in Brooklyn, NY to Aloyse and Mary Oberle. He graduated from James Madison High School and then joined the U.S. Navy. He lived in Brooklyn until 1978 and then moved his family to Stony Point, NY. He was a member of the Laborers International Union for 50 years. He also owned a store in the Dutchess Mall for a number of years.
He is predeceased by his wife of 51 years, Margie, his sister, Mary Lyons, and nephews John, Stephen and John Jr. He is survived by his daughter Helen of Mahwah, NJ, his daughter Lori Finucane (John) of Chandler, AZ, daughter, Donna Lake (Robert) of Gilbert, AZ and son, Charles, Jr. (Tanya), his beloved grandchildren, Jenna, Jonelle, Shane and Brianna and his special friend, Sandy. He is also survived by his siblings, Al, Margaret, Tommy, Betty and John and their families. He will be dearly missed by everyone.
He loved his family and was a very kind, happy and loving father and husband. He enjoyed taking his family to the beach and on many fun vacations. During his retirement, he moved to Arizona and lived as a snowbird going back and forth between AZ and NY to be near his family. He also lived in Albrightsville, PA for several years. He always enjoyed family gatherings and holidays, eating out, barbecuing, gambling, playing cards, working out and watching gangster movies.
Services will be held at the convenience of the family due to COVID restrictions.
In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in his name to the American Cancer Society in honor of Margie.
